NCCOS supports research programs that provide the critical information and predictive capabilities required to manage the nation’s coastal resources in an ecosystem context. NCCOS addresses these issues via a stressor-based or regional ecosystem approach. These issues typically require multi-disciplinary research teams and a significant long-term commitment of resources because of their complexity and the effort required to reach a new level of understanding sufficient to support NOS priorities and drive future coastal management decisions.
Applications for funding are submitted through FFO notices posted on the Grants.gov website. Notices of specific Announcements of Opportunity posted here on the NCCOS Funding Opportunities page are provided as a courtesy to our research community and in no way replace the official information provided through Grants.gov.
NCCOS anticipates issuing Federal Funding Opportunity Announcements for FY 2016 programs in mid-October 2015, with application due dates in January 2016. Check the Grants.gov website for FFO announcements.
New NCCOS Funding Announcements

Funding Opportunity Number: NOAA-NOS-NCCOS-2016-2004640
Funding Opportunity Title: National Competitive Hypoxia Programs: the Northern Gulf of Mexico Ecosystems and Hypoxia Assessment Program (NGOMEX) and Coastal Hypoxia Research Program (CHRP)
The NCCOS Center for Sponsored Coastal Ocean Research is soliciting proposals under the Ecological Effects of Sea Level Rise Program to evaluate and quantify the ability of coastal natural and nature-based features to mitigate the effects of sea level rise and inundation (storm surge, nuisance flooding, and/or wave run-up) effects on coastal ecosystems and communities through integrated field research and advancement of dynamic modeling tools. The deadline for receipt of full applications, which should be submitted through Grants.gov, is January 8, 2016. An announcement of opportunity has been posted to submit proposals through Grants.gov: http://go.usa.gov/3te6W
Funding Opportunity Number: NOAA-NOS-NCCOS-2016-2004616
Funding Opportunity Title: 2016 Ecological Effects of Sea Level Rise Program - Advancing Predictive Capabilities to Evaluate Natural and Nature-based Features
